Time to celebrate an extremely rare occurrence. Yesterday, the Saints went to Craven Cottage and demolished a poor Fulham side 3-0 with goals from England trio Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Jay Rodrigues. There is indeed only one `F` in Fulham.
Meanwhile in the West Country, Bristol City not only came back from a goal down against Carlisle to win 2-1 but in the process climbed out of the relegation zone in League One thanks largely, I imagine, to the return of Snopper Street local hero Scott Wagstaff, happily recovered from a niggling hamstring problem.
And at Priestfield Stadium, Gillingham saw off Port Vale with a 3-2 victory over determined opposition to see my neighbour Mr. Slightly adopt a rare over the moon posture.
In the lower reaches of League Two, low riding plucky minnows P***smouth suffered a home defeat to Torquay United, thus maintaining their flirtation with relegation out of the Football League and to round off a perfick day, Manchester United lost again, this time to Stoke City. Deep joy all round - I could almost forgive England`s cricketers.....
